My navel(around the navel) has become dark or black in 27th week of pregnancy. Is it normal?Will my whole stomach become black?

Nimisha Mistry

R u taking iron tablet?


Yes I am taking one at night as prescribed by doctor.


This happens.. even my navel area has become dark.. the whole tummy will not be dark though, just stretch marks. don't worry, my gyn says these will fade away with time, just keep the area well moisturised.

It wl happen, its part of pregnancy... Its ok use bio oil.... It wl go once u r thru wid yr pregnancy...

Ya even I'm 27 weeks pregnant.. even it has happened to me also.... I hope it's normal

Dr. Riddhi Kataria

Yes its normal. Its due to hormonal changes in Pregnancy.

Deepthi & Amita, Relax & Enjoy your pregnancy.
